Firms dependent on Philippine-based BPO and call centres on notice as COVID-19 bug hits Deloitte!

The Philippines remains suspect as a country close to the epicenter of the global COVID-19 outbreak that seems to be lax in its testing and possibly underreporting infection rates. A case reportedly hitting Deloitte Philippines which holds office at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig highlights the risks posed by the disease on the Philippines’ […]

Randy David proves Yellowtards wrong: “Democracy” was never the solution to Philippine poverty!

In a public lecture he delivered in Fukuoka, Japan this week, David attempts to “explain the apparent public acceptance by the Filipino people of what many observers abroad regard as the most brutal presidency the Philippines has ever known”. In trying to explain why the Philippines has once again turned to authoritarianism, it may be […]

An influx of Chinese workers inducing rise in property values is not a bad thing

Some “analysts” are making it look like rising property prices which they attribute to an influx of Chinese and other foreign workers are a bad thing. On the contrary this is an opportunity that could result in the creation of more jobs. Rising prices are a sign of pressure on supply due to increasing demand. […]

Xi Jinping is not coming to takeover the Philippines. He’s coming to inspect the results of a COMPLETED takeover. #XiJinPoohPH

Poor Yellowtard “activists”. They reckon they’d “protest” the visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping this week. Twitter users among them are even changing their profile avatars to images of Winnie the Pooh as an act of solidarity with their comrades in virtue signalling. Thing is, the Chinese invasion of the Philippines has long been a […]

If Filipinos want to fight inflation, they should BOYCOTT Christmas

The enemy of high prices is surplus supply and weak demand. Consumers have power over the latter. Stop buying useless trinkets and demand drops, inventories soar, and prices collapse. It is therefore easy and painless to bring traders and retailers to their knees and force them to update the outrageous price tags on their goods […]

Filipinos should stop praying and start making money

The reason Filipinos are poor is because they spend an inordinate amount of time and headspace praying rather than focus on the business of making money. An example is the crowds we see today queueing up for the privilege of catching a glimpse of the most recent Catholic hood ornament. One wonders how “hard” Filipinos […]

Yellowtards like @MrFrankBaraan are not qualified to make comments about inflation. Or ANYTHING about economics.

Famous Filipino singer Lea Salonga recently issued a sensible take on the anger Filipinos supposedly feel about high inflation rates being reported nowadays. This opinion was cited in an Inquirer report… “You gotta wonder, we’re angry about this, we have to see if it’s happened in previous administrations before and if we got angry then, […]

Inequality is par for the course in a free market economy

Philippine Opposition “thought” leaders, only quick to throw a wet blanket over recent reports of economists forecasting the Philippines’ economy attaining “upper middle income” status by 2022, lament how there will still be “tens of millions of poor Filipinos” nonetheless. Well tough shit, right? It is not surprising that these whiney voices come from the […]
